Yield

Yield

A Poem by Robert Trakofler
"

am I a poet or a peachtree

"




Standing in the back yard of my typewriter

Rooted in the mercenary lavish

Of symbiosis for the equity of propagation

A peach tree grows a desirous fruit

Wrapped in the aspire of future yield

Like the penitent prayer of an old poet

Steeped in the selfish pursuits of philanthropic proclaim

For even the most generous heart

has an indulgent spirit

Its quarry, may be a smile

on the victim of a familiar wound;

or a freshly planted peach pit

bathed in the promise

of a many a harvest yet to come

but one thing is for certain

benevolent is not the peach tree

nor the author of soothes compose

though they may smile at the trickles of nectar

dripping down freshly nourished cheeks

it is they, that get renewed

The stone of the peach is hard hard but full of ideas waiting to be planted and yield
The flesh is soft juicy ideas
The skin is velvety smooth like our words when they do come

I liked your poem
Loved the voice I would love to recite but is it free
Sounds great more personal hearing the voice
Great metaphors you had
Hope you well n safe

Hearing your voice is yet another harvest, Sir Bunny. The words alone certainly flourish and satisfy yet, unlike so many, your metaphorical sincerity and intent leave a sweet taste in one's life. Thank you, sir. Hopefully, life is kindernow.. Please keep safe, take care.

If only the poem tree would produce more fruit. My tree has not produced in the amount I'd wish for so long, only those trickles of ideas. But I'll bet many feel the same way. :)

I will send you a case of fresh peaches my brother poet!
Like the collector of antiquities, the poet collects (a hoarder of things seen, and or wanted). A snack for those that read, and a buffet for he that did compose.

Giving is receiving.... That's the essence of life. Whether it's a peach tree or a poet. When one gets nourished by this act, the real pleasure lies with the giver.

The attached picture with the poem is so classy...

I like how I put flowers on the keys:)
Hello, Bunny! :)
My mind is a bit slow at catching symbolism, so I listened to this three times. Your imagery and wording here are lovely. This is a juicy introspective peach. Creating poetry must be pleasurable, or else we wouldn't do it, and in the end we've added something new into the world, just as everyday the world adds to us, and vice-versa and vice-versa. haha

I like all of what you saw in this my friend
Remarkable retrofit of the language. For whose benefit? The reader? The writer? Posterity?

Go with posterity it's another way to procrastinate.
that must be a very large typewriter, being also able to hold a ton-a manure because as far as I can see your peach tree grows delicious fruit
